What Is Happening To The Amazon and What Is It's Future?

2019-08-23 01:12:48

The Amazon rainforest is burning at an unprecedented rate, reports Business Insider. More than 74,000 fires have sparked so far this year, compared to 40,000 total fires in 2018. The Amazon has also seen record-breaking levels of deforestation. About three football fields' worth of rainforest per minute are being lost. This is primarily to infrastructure projects, logging, mining, and farming... much of which is not legal. Scientists warn that if the forest loss passes a certain threshold, the Amazon may never recover. If it cannot recover, 20% of the world's oxygen will be lost and the forest could become a savannah.
